Fox, my 10 year old male quaker parrot, has become fascinated with my iPad.

The touch screen responds to his beak. Also to his feet and even his tongue :unsure:

This started a f was lying on my bed reading an article on something while he and Quak (14 year old female quaker) were sitting on my shoulders relaxing. All of a sudden, Fox walks up to the screen and starts messing with it, and it responds. He pulls back like he's surprised, then cautiously goes back to it. Before long he's having the time of his life while I'm watching my iPad go all over the place (he clicked some popup ads).

Now when I pull my iPad out, I have to be prepared to share.

Paragraph should begin "This started a few days ago as I was lying on my bed reading..." but a certain someone hit the post button while I was editing :unsure:

Wont be surprised if my Internet history suddenly starts showing a lot of bird supply sites.

For the record, Fox was already a mischievous little critter.

He likes to walk across my computer keyboard and peck at the keys while I'm typing.

He tries to pry the battery covers off my remote controls if I leave them where he can get to them.

I can't leave loose change lying around because he'll steal it and hide it in the bottom of his cage. Even caught him red handed trying to steal cash once or twice.

He's tried to steal other things too, including my glasses and my car keys.

And now the little snot wants to go on the Internet? No way :(

Nah. I still love the little brat too much.

But just so you know, Fox absolutely loves the taste of chicken. Turkey too. He'll even eat scrambled eggs (kinda disturbing when you think about it).

I took a picture a while back of him holding a wing from Dominos in his claw and munching on it. Pic somehow got deleted though :(
